  • Movie Goof (crew or equipment visible): Ridley Scott's reflection is visible on a television set during the scene where Detective Trupo is searching the Frank Lucas (III) residence. There's a brief glimpse of Scott while the television is showing the caskets of deceased American GIs, right before cutting away to Russell Crowe in the cargo hold of a C-130 examining caskets.
  • During the very first stages of production, this film had a number of different titles, such as "Tru Blu" and "The Return of Superfly".
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): The C-130 pictured carrying the first drug shipment (in the late 1960s) is a C-130H3, a type that was not produced until 1992.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): Frank Lucas (III) drives to Washington, D.C. past a sign saying I-395, a road name not used until the late seventies.
